Ive come across a handy installer that has literally saved me countless hours – Installing those handy apps and programs that you can’t go without!
NINITE.COM – creates an installer for you – on your selection of up to almost 100 free programs. The really good thing is that it is automatic (no more clicking next, next, download, next…etc) AND the BEST thing is that the installer says “No” to all those extra toolbars and crapware that normally hangs off (like warts!) to each individual software installer!
Software like – iTunes, Firefox, Flash, Skype, Adobe Reader, MalwareBytes etc.
When I do a pre-delivery of a laptop or when I build a computer for a client – after removing all of the junk, trialware and other bloated software – within two minutes I can go to Ninite, select the apps/software that the computer needs and start the installation process – knowing that it will do the rest.
If I’m working on a computer (whether it is in the workshop or on site), if I come across a program that the computer requires and is not installed – I go straight to ninite and not the programs homepage! Some programs get you to install their own downloader before actually downloading the program plus attaching other crap like toolbars etc – stuff that the client doesn’t want/need.
So many times I’ve come across a computer – opened Internet Explorer, only to see that half the screen is taken up with toolbars – and the client doesn’t know where they have come from!
The other great thing is you can keep the Ninite installer and run it monthly to keep all of the selected programs updated!
